as if they could
store the sun
small blankets
on a chair
add color to
the scene
as they await
to warm
another time

early hours
of quiet and poetry
gardens overflow
and if some winter
my mind forgets
my heart will know

We’ve had a lot of rain.

Yesterday I went to Mead Public Library in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.  I had not been there for a time.  They had a large selection of used books for sale.  I bought two poetry books, for less than one dollar.  Lilacs were in bloom along the roads.

Then I stopped at Arby’s in Kohler.  A young person held the door for me, and people were so kind.  I am older now.  I enjoyed a salad, and brought a cup of coffee home.

O  pens to songs, silence, and new
S  trength, with hope
E  verlasting

Our pink peonies will bloom soon.  My parents had red, white, and pink peonies in their yard.
